Alvin & The Chipmunks Christmas carols should be outlawed under the Geneva Conventions.  You can hear it in your head right now, can't you?

For the life of me, I will never understand how Alvin and the Chipmunks had any life outside a novelty Christmas song.

But at the very least, it gave us this.

I still have 45s from the early 80s with picture books, that I spent time playing at 33 rpm.

My usual expectations for Justin Long are pretty low, so this definitely played into that.

That's craft right there.  To beat a simple joke to death, then double down on it and make the whole thing even funnier thereby...

Justin Long's New Movie is an interesting title for a film, but a little bit too post-modern for me.

If it's better than Tusk, I'll see it.

I really enjoyed Justin Long's New Movie. There's even boobies in it!

the bs i saw was the movie calling itself a cult classic well in advance of the situaiuton that would reveal a movie garnered cult status.

Cult films are films you can't plan to make, they either garner the status after release or they do not.

Kind of like a good bad movie. Part of what makes it what it is, is that it was not trying to be that in the first place.
that's something that just happens or not.

The sound of The Christmas Song played at 33 1/3 and 16 2/3 is seared into my brain.

I perceived that part as a joke, although they definitely deliberately mixed in reviews of people saying stuff like that (which is standard movie ad stuff to do that once people declare it--it's reviewers who created the ridiculous phrase "instant classic", after all).  But they also compared it to Alvin and the Chipmunks, knowing that's a ridiculous film and more typical of Justin Long's career.   It's a high-concept ad.

Someone feels they're an artiste then?  In that case their eyes were bigger than they're ability imo

/for what that's worth

Their ability - dammit.  Ok I've spent 3 days not going off on this but dammit a dead thread on an old post is going to have to do.  I really, really hate the few days after a Covid booster, 'cause for me they're GD wrecking balls mentally and physically.  Gah!

/this is not to be construed as a post against them
//quite the opposite - I know what's coming and I still got my bivalent as soon as I could 'cause farking duh?
///I just could wish for them to be a bit less of a train wreck as far as the few days afterward is all
////ok - biatching over
